Mavis and Joseph live in a first floor flat. Joseph is Mavis' full-time carer, as Mavis has advanced Dementia.
Joseph was scheduled to have a heart bypass and knew a stay in hospital was inevitable. However, he was concerned as Mavis had a habit of leaving the bathroom taps running, which had once caused damage to the flat below.
Carers would be visting Mavis in the morning, and Joseph and Mavis' daughter would be popping in to check on her mum after work, but by then the flat could be flooded. Joseph's friend mentioned Assistive Technology after reading a leaflet about it in his GP surgery.
After a little bit of research, Joseph was able to arrange the installation of a Lifeline unit with an Assistive Technology Flood Detector, which set his mind at rest about leaving Mavis alone at home while he went into hospital.
